Indeed I still struggle Swimming upstream with might Never giving up on what I care for Because a strong woman, I am
You might use your jagged tongue To tear me down for what I do You are so cruel and judgmental Is it my strength that bothers you?
I wept from your harsh words That took me by surprise In front of other guests Embarrassed I sure was
Instead of wheeling and dealing, Writing poems and stories, too You think I should stop it all Does my independence bother you?
I work full time at school and in my home Devoting ample time to my kids every day Cheering at their sports events, celebrations, Plus, all the pain and glory that presents each day
Glance at the mirror Take a good look at your soul If what you see is perfection Then gently stroke your sharp tongue
I am a strong woman I will continue to work hard My accomplishments and failures Are what make me who I am
If I ever do it differently It will be because I will change For God, my children, and me Not because I am stepped and crushed
I am who I am, not just anyone to fit in I refuse to fit the mold and take the easy route Tenacity and endurance is what I hold Because a strong woman, I am
